Patriotic Potato Salad

1 pound blue potatoes
1 pound white potatoes
1/2 pound red potatoes
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 cloves garlic
sea salt
1 1/2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
1/3 cup torn basil
2 tablespoons chopped scallions
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Slice potatoes into halves or quarters of similar size and put in a large pot.  Cover with cold water and add 2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar, 2 cloves of garlic and a pinch of salt.  Bring to a boil, then simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.  Drain and cool slightly, and discard the garlic.  Toss with cherry tomatoes, torn basil, scallions and parsley.  Dress with olive oil, 2 more tablespoons vinegar, and salt and pepper.
